Last updated on Tuesday, February 21, 2012

(INDIANAPOLIS) - Indiana lawmakers are closing in on the end of the 2012 session with some big issues left on their plates.

Senate lawmakers are set to work on a statewide smoking ban this week. House lawmakers meanwhile will consider banning "bath salts" and other synthetic drugs.

The Senate also is set to consider another $5 million dollars to victims of the Indiana State Fair stage collapse and $80 million dollars for full-day kindergarten.

Republican House Speaker Brian Bosma says lawmakers could go home March 9th- well ahead of their March 14th deadline.
